Cafcass: National Rates of Care Applications 2016-17

Cafcass publishes annual statistics showing the national rate of care applications by each local authority (LA) in England with children’s services responsibilities in order to help identify trends in care proceedings independent of population growth.

The figures released for 2016-17 show that while there continues to be considerable variation in the rate of care applications for indivdual local authorities, the national rate of care applications per 10,000 of the population has increased from 8.0 in 2009-10 to 12.5 in 2016-17.

Further details and a link to the LA table are provided on the Cafcass website.
